March 2, 2021


Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.
We're looking for a Director, Business Operations and Strategy to build and scale business operations at Webflow. This is a unique opportunity to apply business insights, analytical skills, and strategic thinking to build a team and work cross functionally to deliver high-impact, strategic projects for our organization. This role offers immense career opportunities and progression in a high-growth environment.
About the role
  • Location: San Francisco HQ or remote
  • Full-time

As a Director, Business Operations and Strategy, you'll …
  • Manage the Business Operations and Strategy team with a focus on leading cross-functional efforts to develop and implement strategic initiatives at Webflow
  • Partner with the executive team and other leaders to own and improve operational excellence and performance management by owning the business planning that measures objectives and key results (OKRs) and key performance indicators (KPIs), including setting up the cadence of review, key insights and follow up actions
  • Partner across Webflow to continually improve our pricing and packaging offering for self serve and Enterprise customers
  • Lead and manage strategic and operational planning for new and existing products, perform assessment of customer needs, market size and trends, and competitive benchmarking to align the organization around the new initiatives
  • Take on and execute other strategic high-impact projects for the executive team, the founders, and other important stakeholders
  • Manage, grow and mentor the Business Operations and Strategy team as we scale

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. And this isn't just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities.
About you
You'll thrive as a Director, Business Operations and Strategy if you:
  • Have experience in an analytical field, such as strategy, business operations and/or management consulting
  • A track record of managerial leadership, expertise and mentorship in growing & developing high-functioning teams
  • Comfortable working in a high growth, constantly changing environment
  • Possess strong business acumen and analytical mindset with the ability to identify metrics and data to back up your strategy, programs and ideas
  • Have exceptional prioritization and project management skills
  • Excellent at developing presentations and communicating to a wide range of audiences
  • Are able to collaborate effectively across multiple teams and are a thoughtful, direct, and kind communicator, both verbal and written

If you don't meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role's requirements.
